Back seat of the plane, no door, 1100′ up, 160mph, banking around Wembley Stadium, Awesome….
Sunday was a miserable wet day, and not really ‘Summertime’, but this didn’t make the experience any less thrilling!
The plan was for 4 of us, the pilot, Capital FM Dj Sacha Brooks, the sound engineer and myself, to fly over Wembley Stadium, wave our wings, and broadcast a live feed to the crowd attending Capital FM’s Summertime Ball below.
Within a few minutes of leaving the airport the plane was above Wembley. We circumnavigated the stadium a number of times and made a couple of flights across the top, each time flipping the plane onto it’s side.
Shooting on a 200mm, and with such high speeds and vibration from the plane, the shutter speed had to be set at around 1/2000th of a second.
All in all it was an incredible experience, 2 flights above Wembley Stadium with the door off, thanks Capital FM and The Press Association for organising it.
